Sorry for a noob Q. but where can I find Kent Wang jackets and suits online? I'm in EU. There's no much selection at all on a KW web page. I like the design of the jackets too. Wish there's a more styles available for purchase ..

Only from Kent Wang. Normally you'd order the trial suit, send Aaron pictures to make adjustments, and then place your final order (returning the trial). If you click here, you'll see images of the swatch books you can order from. They also have access to essentially anything on the Hudderfield site, or you could send in fabric that you source yourself.

Kent may I suggest one additional polo color that I think fills a gap in the lineup? A cream, sand, or very light brown; a warm earth tone that's on the lighter side. It's a color that works really well for a lot of scenarios and I think rounds out your stable with a less-saturated option, much like the light blue does for navy.

Anybody have experience with the handgrade loafers? Did you size down 1/2 from TTS? What's the quality like?

@Kent Wang, I'm sure you get plenty of square suggestions, but it would be great to see a series of squares in all the letters of the alphabet (or at least the more common ones) from illuminated manuscripts. e.g.:

I predict Kent likes this one:

I would change my name to Orville if he made that square.

He likes W.

If you find a good illuminated W, it might be an easy sell.

Okay, I'll change my name to Wilbur, but only if I can find a nice illuminated "W" with a dude in St. George's Cross armour slaying a dragon.

They're called historiated initials. I've looked at some of these before. The illuminated manuscript ones are the coolest, but the samples you posted are not very detailed. 

 

 

This B has more detail, but unfortunately is not square, and like many illuminated manuscripts shows some damage. I could potentially hire an artist to redraw it so that it fits into a square better.

The Book of Kells Chi Rho is not a historiated initial but is spectacular. A modern artist has redrawn it. I tried to hire him to do something for me but he wasn't interested. I want to find another artist that's experienced with illuminated manuscripts, but haven't gotten around to it.

Like this? I'm not really fond of this.

Only on our website. We have thousands of fabrics available through made-to-measure. Shipping to the EU is quite affordable, and I think you'll find the total price (including shipping) to be much better than EU competitors.

All our shoes are true to size.

No, me either; more like below (maybe I just should have said "cream", I think that's what these are):

Guess that's the problem, then. Finding ones that are (1) detailed, (2) square, and (3) not overtly religious.

Thanks for the help. Seems the Ariston and the other popular navy weaves posted in this thread are no longer sold so going with a more standard VBC Four Season Navy Weave.

Also, I was thinking of going with these options after discussing with Aaron. Not sure if the structure should be standard canvas since I am going with Roped shoulder or not. Anyone have any opinions on that or anything else? Would hate to mess this up. Thanks.
